Grasshopper Manufacture CEO Goichi “Suda51” Suda doesn’t want his company associated with any one particular set of “traits” as game makers, the designer told 4Gamer in a recent interview.
According to Suda, “there is no creation without destruction,” and it’s this notion of removing the old model to make way for the new that fuels his company.
“I believe what’s most in demand for videogames are titles with bold challenges and something that offers a new way to player,” Suda added. “If we can properly make a game like that, I’m certain that it will reach out.”
Grasshopper’s most recent project was the stylized hack-and-slash action game Killer Is Dead for PS3 and Xbox 360 (also coming to Windows PC May 9). They are currently working on Lily Bergamo, another hack-and-slash action game, for the PlayStation 4.
